It's that time of year again. Candies that have not seen the light of day in over a year are resurrected. Creme eggs & Peeps inhibit the bottom on the candy food chain for me. Actually, I am not a big candy fan. Reese's or Butterfingers occasionally. There is just something about the combination of peanut butter and chocolate.
Anyway, back to the Peeps. They really are scary things. Peeps, it seems, colonized our planet in an effort to escape the ammonia rich environment on Venus, at least that is what scientists Scully and Mulder shared back in 1996. There is an abundance of scientific research on these invaders.
Tried to set one on fire once. Animal rights groups are probably cringing, but lets face it they are sugar and oxygen mostly. I rather like my oxygen, unsweetened. The way we take care of our oxygen around here, they will most likely have to move on to another planet soon enough. Wonder where they will go next?
Keep an eye on these pesky critters. When they start to disappear, you may want to start considering real estate somewhere outside our atmosphere. Or maybe we could just stop treating our planet like a trash dump.
